Attendance: Professional teachers are dependable, reliable, and responsible. Therefore, candidates are expected to be on time and in attendance at every class, and to stay for the entire class. Tardiness, leaving early, and absences are considered evidence of lack of dependability, and are taken seriously.
Course grades will be affected by each absence. Daily grades are given for class participation and in-class assignments. Daily work cannot be made up unless absence is previously authorized. We will only take responsibility for having handouts and materials at class on the day initially provided. If you have to be absent, be sure you have arranged for a peer to obtain materials for you. Call or email the appropriate professor/mentor teacher if you are going to be late or absent for lecture or internship.
Absences will cost you up to 20 points per class. Any absences beyond 3 will demonstrate the candidate’s lack of professional responsibility and may result in the candidate being dropped from the course or issued a fitness alert. It is the candidate’s responsibility to make up any missed work.
